What happens when you have a string of hit movies and then your ensuing endeavors don’t do nearly as well at the box office? You go back to the well and hope for another round of acclaim. Apparently that’s what the Wachowskis are planning to do.
Although the filmmakers’ “Jupiter Ascending” could be the next “Avatar” — after all, anything is possible in that wacky world known as Hollywood — it’s no secret that the Wachowskis haven’t enjoyed the same level of success following the release of “The Matrix” trilogy. While I adored “Speed Racer,” “Cloud Atlas” was definitely a little hard to swallow. Scratch that — it was a mess. To hell with being diplomatic.
According to Latino Review, the Wachowskis are planning to put together a prequel to “The Matrix.” Although neither the directors nor Warner Bros. have confirmed these reports, the website seems to think the scripting process is already underway.
Here’s the rumor:
We’ve been told that the Wachowski’s have already started the writing process with early treatments and outlines already turned into the studio. No word if they will want to direct but my money says “Claro que Si!”… The derisive ending of the original Matrix trilogy include the bearded Architect suggesting that Neo wasn’t the first “One,” opening the story world for prequels.
Of course, this could be nothing more than another unsubstantiated internet rumor. However, it wouldn’t surprise anyone if Warner Bros. wanted another round of “Matrix” movies. What do you think? Do you want to see more movies in the series?
